    Yay! I'm so excited! I don't really have much to say except for yay! 2 white silkie chicks and 1 black one! Of course I have a broody RIR right now, so we will have more chicks soon, but I couldn't resist these little babies at the local ranch store when I saw them! They are straight run, and I have really bad luck with chicks anyway in that 90% of all chicks I've ever hatched or purchased have turned out to be roos, but these are sooooo cute with their fuzziness and their 5 toes and their black legs and extra pointy beaks!

    Ha ha. I sent photos of my chicks to my city-girl sister in CA along with photos of what silkies look like when they grow up. She thinks it is a joke. She doesn't believe me that they are real chickens. She and my Mom spent a good part of Mother's Day looking at the photos and debating whether or not they are puppets! [​IMG]

    ha ha i love that we KNOW about chickens and what breeds are out there. I think if we posted it on the web and asked if they think it is a chicken a lot would say NO but US B.Y.C.ers would say yes. [​IMG]

    Well, you have to admit, they sure don't look like what most people think a chicken should look like. I always think they look like puffy little stuffed animals!!!! [​IMG]
